a teacher in Shenyang, rises to fame!
written and edited by her
is selected in a national art textbook!
Zhou Dongping also felt surprised that her own course was selected in a national art textbook.
In 2014, Ms. Zhou's weaving work won the first prize in the Liaoning Province Art Teachers Basic Skills Competition.
After the competition, she received a notice to participate in the compilation of the primary school art textbook (The Fourth Grade Ⅰ) published by People's Fine Arts Publishing House.
As the fourth-generation inheritor of "Zhou’s straw-plaited skill", an intangible heritage project, she compiled the pictures and the diagrams of the weaving process of straw-plaited artwork she participated in the design at that time, and the weaving works of paper strips and its diagrams of the production process into "The Joy of Weaving".
Zhou Dongping has two big plans now.
One is to make a straw-plaited version of "Ascending the River at Qingming Festival".
The other is to record an online straw-plaited public welfare course so that more people can learn about it.
